    Hi, I am running leopard 10.5.2 on a 17" hi-res SR MBP. Sometimes I notice that a part of a line or two of text will become bolded and/or run into another line of text making it hard to read. Scrolling up or down to remove the offending line from visibility, and then scrolling back usually fixes it, but it is a nuisance. I have come across this problem using iChat (most common) and Firefox.

    Any ideas how to fix this? :confused:

    I have seen this same problem occur sporadically on every computer and every OS I have ever run including Windows, FreeBSD, linux, and rarely in OS X. Sometimes it is caused by running an LCD screen at non-native resolution or by zooming in and forgetting to zoom completely out again. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you.
